Animal Collective have announced a new live album, Ballet Slippers, that features tracks recorded on a tour in 2009 and is being released in honor of the 10th anniversary of what is likely their biggest album, Merriweather Post Pavilion. Ballet Slippers is due out November 22 via Domino, including via a 3-LP vinyl release. Ajay Saggar mixed the album and Noah Lennox (aka Panda Bear) edited it. Check out the tracklist below and above is the album cover.

Animal Collective had this to say in a press release: "It's impossible for us to remember the years around Merriweather Post Pavilion without thinking about the live experience. As the record turns 10, there has been a lot of talk about the album itself, but so much of the time living with those songs was spent on stage together. Every night on tour, the music opened up again, leaving us new spaces to fill and new opportunities to rethink our past. Just as Merriweather documents the era in one of its forms, we wanted Ballet Slippers to do the same for some of its other forms."

The press release describes the album as such: "Recorded in the midst of the band's extensive and acclaimed nine-month tour in '09, the album features Merriweather's greatest hits alongside favorites from Strawberry Jam, Sung Tongs, Feels, and Danse Manatee. The release is culled from several shows from that album's North American tour and sequenced to reflect a full concert experience, complete with song transitions and interludes, creating a captivating document of the genre-defying group."
